MADISON - The Democratic Party of Wisconsin announced Wednesday the “Leah Vukmir Isn’t For Us” Tour -- a two-day, statewide tour highlighting Republican U.S. Senate nominee Leah Vukmir’s health care record.

The “Leah Vukmir Isn’t For Us” Tour -- which will include press events in Madison, Milwaukee, Eau Claire, Wausau, and Green Bay -- will feature Wisconsin nurses and health care professionals who are holding press events across the state to highlight Leah Vukmir’s health care agenda that includes:

  • gutting protections for Wisconsinites with pre-existing conditions;

  • letting insurance companies charge seniors more; and,

  • pursuing deep cuts to Medicare and Medicaid, which covers three in five Wisconsin nursing homes residents.

As a national leader of ALEC, a shadowy corporate special interest group, Leah Vukmir has taken her cues from special interests, not Wisconsin families, including by limiting health care coverage and making it harder to hold neglectful nursing homes accountable.
